Chicken Noodle Soup


Like most people, I just love having a bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup. It’s probably one of the easiest soup to cook. It takes a bit of time; but, I usually make the effort. I think nothing beats delicious, healthy homemade soup. Right? On that note, I hope I can encourage you to try cooking this hearty soup at home. I am sure you will enjoy it! For the main ingredient, do try to opt for organic/free range chicken, if possible. They are much tastier than the regular chicken, in my opinion. As for the pasta, you can use any variety or shapes of your choice. Enjoy!

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
